Because of the issue mentioned earlier, I suspected the SSD may have failed, so I decided to replace the SSD with a newer (and larger) drive which is a "Crucible" SSD which indicated was compatible with the HP laptop device.
Since this is a new drive, there is no OS present on it yet, but the expectation is to re-install fresh Windows 10 setup.
Following installation, continued to receive message like the previously mentioned.
(1) Running the Diagnostic tests on the system (Memory Passed but Hard Drive fails to recognized)
(2) Obtained the UEFI and attempted further diagnostics all of which passed but still did not recognize the drive
(3) Updating the Bios to the latest and still no luck
(4) Using the Media Creation Tool to try to installed Windows 10 on the drive however this also does not recognize the drive.
I am close to the point of giving up but was hopeful someone here might have some suggestions.
I appreciate your detailed explanation of the issue and also your efforts in trying to resolve the issue. Since you have already tried all the possible steps, I'd further recommend you reach out to the HP Support in your region regarding the service options/remote assistance for your computer.
Hope this helps!
